    Took a picture with the phone. Picture went to Gallery. How do I then trransfer the picture to the SD card? I tried the menu option,long hold on the photo,but can not find an option to save to SD.

    Pictures taken with the camera are automatically stored on the SD card. Should be in the \DCIM\Camera directory.

    As LifeIsABeach said, you don't need to move it... because it is already there. But should you want to move files around now or in the future you may wish to look at getting Astro or another one of the file managers in the market.

    Thanks again! I looked everywhere for it except in DCIM. JayMonster,I do have Astro,however I am still learning how to use the program to it's full potential. Gallery still seems to have a lot of duplicate folders,but I just deal with it for now. Thanks again for your help & suggestions. Makes having the phone more enjoyable!

    They are not "duplicates." There are multiple "views" of your images. One "Camera Pictures" filters and displays only what what taken with the camera. Whereas "all pictures" shows you (obviously) every image on the phone.

    Hope that clears up some of the confusion.

    With Asto you can go into the dcmi folder, touch the menu button on the phone, you'll see a menu where you can make a new folder. Using the toolbar at the top of Astro you can edit. Such as move by touch the picture and touch edit then the up folder or back to go to the folder of your choice. Open the folder, touch edit again, then touch paste.
